TriviaEdit

  • Despite its species being "Legendary Pokémon", it is not a Legendary Pokémon. This likely due to it evolving from Growlithe and Legendary Pokémon can never have an evolution chain.
    • Originally, Arcanine was going to be a Legendary Pokémon but the idea was scrapped when it was given a pre-evolution.
  • Arcanine's prototype name was "Blaze."
  • The Yellow Pokédex entry states that Arcanine is seen in China, showing that there are similarities in regions with the real world and Pokémon world.
  • Arcanine is possibly a mix breed of a wolf and tiger.

OriginsEdit

Arcanine is based on a large dog, such as a wolf, with some tiger and lion-like traits. Due to its slight lion-like appearance, Arcanine somewhat resemble the Chinese Shisa, a traditional Ryukyuan decoration from Okinawa mythology.

Arcanine's English name comes from a combination of the words "Arcane" meaning ancient and mysterious, and "Canine".
